Celebrate our ANAHEIM ANGELS at the DISNEYLANDï¿½ RESORT
Join us as we celebrate the American League pennant-winning Anaheim Angels heading for the first-time ever to the World Series. Throughout the span of the Series, the DISNEYLANDï¿½ Resort will be saluting the Angels with great events to rally fans both locally and around the nation.
The fanfare kicks off on Friday, October 18 at 6:30 p.m. through 9 p.m. with the Official Anaheim Angels World Series Pep Rally at DOWNTOWN DISNEYï¿½. You are invited to this free event to cheer the Angels on to victory before the first game of the series. Throughout the evening, you can participate in baseball trivia for a chance to win bats and balls signed by Angels players. The first 10,000 guests in attendance will receive specially created halo hats available only at the pep rally and Thunder Sticks to show their support for the home team.
To share the excitement with the rest of the country, ESPN will broadcast the BASEBALL TONIGHT World Series Preview Special Live From DISNEY’S CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE ™ at 4 p.m. PT. During the one-hour program, host Karl Ravech and analysts Peter Gammons and Harold Reynolds will preview the Series with a focus on the starting pitching rotations, review this season’s top “Web Gems,” present a feature on Barry Bonds’ season and showcase a montage of the year’s highlights.
For the remainder of the Series, from Saturday October 19 through Sunday October 27, fans are welcomed back to DOWNTOWN DISNEY where Jumbo Tron screens will broadcast the games and live-band entertainment will keep the party going. Live television and radio remotes at DOWNTOWN DISNEY are also planned for the run of the Series, and guests are encouraged to stop by and watch their favorite radio personalities in action.
Adding a festive touch to “The California Series,” the “A”s in the CALIFORNIA sign at DISNEY’S CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE(tm) will be painted red and adorned with halos, and banners saluting the two California teams will hang from the Golden State Bridge at DISNEY’S CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE entrance.
And don’t miss the special Angels merchandise including apparel, Rally Monkeys and Angels wings and halos, all available at DISNEYLAND PARK, DISNEY’S CALIFORNIA ADVENTURE and DOWNTOWN DISNEY.
